Welcome to our Contra Dancing Site!

Add Our Upcoming Dances to Your Calendar


Please do not park, even part way, on the highway or the circle (River Falls Road or River Falls Lodge Road) including the bridge.  Instead park fully on the grass.  We want to make the roads clear for emergency vehicles to be able to easily get through.  We also do not want to have any problems with any law officials.  If possible, car pool to save on parking space.  Thank you for your attention on this matter.

Thanks so much to all of you for helping to create the Magic of Moondance again! Mark your calendars now to join us again next year for Moondance 2014, Sept. 5-7, 2014.
